The Democratic People's Republic of Wascoitan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Clíona Ní Finn with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.319 billion Wascoitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yexver. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The all-consuming Wascoitanian economy, worth 249 trillion Assembly notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 107,467 Assembly notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wascoitan's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Wascoitan is ranked 204,662nd in the world and 489th in The Leftist Assembly for Fattest Citizens, with 3.54 Obesity Rate.
